aware of that report and here is what kathleen sebelius had to say about that. >> action plans were put in place to address those issues and problems. clearly all of them, and particularly the timing for end to end testing was not sufficient. we have said that over and over again. a number of things that they identified in the march report as vulnerabilities clearly have worked extremely well like the hub. we did exactly what should have been in the middle of a build. and a management assessment of progress in place i think is an appropriate and prudent step to take. >> reporter: and from here in orlando, secretary sebelius travels to miami to continue her assessment that healthcare.gov and the affordable care act is up and running. >> julia thank you very much. >>> people in the midwest are recovering, rebuilding their lives after the deadly string of tornados that tore through the nation's heartland. eight people were killed and dozens more injured. almost 8,000 people remain without power at this hour, and in one of the hardest hit counties, washington, illinois, more than 1 thousand

services officials are there. days later kathleen sebelius says we're right on track to rolling out flawlessly october 1. are we to assume there was such a culture of intimidation or no drama within the white house that no one has had the courage or the responsibility enough to prime the president and say i just saw a presentation. this fall is going to be scary on the rollout? >> what is curious about that is kathleen sebelius was in the meeting. she was there. marilyn tavenner who runs c.m.s., they were there. they heard. one of the things mackenzie said was if your website is not working, the call centers can't get the stuff into the system. we found that out the hard way. they also said there is no single person in charge. this is a giant bureaucracy. you need a project manager. but the federal government said we can handle it. they couldn't. meanwhile it gets even worse. according to -- so that was that. they knew. they knew going back. how many times do we hear the president and his surrogates say if you like your plan, you can keep it? they have known for years that tens of m

-- a microscope to the health- care law. in addition to what we have seen with kathleen sebelius and marilyn tavenner, they may want againr from the top brass as to whether they want to update their thinking on a law. we may get more big picture stuff in december. host: more about life on the hill. here is "the wall street journal." thatg the point immigration, tax reform, a budget breakthrough, things are on hold or frozen. what does it mean? guest: the affordable care act takes oxygen out of the room. it is so politically potent. it affects everyone's constituents. they are getting the most calls on it, too. it provokes strong feelings. the agenda has come to a standstill, there is evidence that some of these things were at a standstill already. the affordable care act, that is how you fill the vacuum at a standstill. over the summer, when immigration was a big topic. when it became clear that that was stalling, the affordable care act came back with a vengeance. that was the issue everyone wanted to talk about. there is some truth that it gets in the way of everything else. also, it is a
murphy says despite kathleen sebelius and other members of the team that all is well and on track of the launch of the affordable care act there were facts there were doubts. the white house finds itself once again on the defensive. >> the fact is when a site like this is going developed and it is tested problems arise checklists are developed and problems are addressed. we believe that the problems were being addressed and while there would be some glitches upon launch on october 1st that obviously we never anticipated we would never have the kind of severe problems we had. >> meantime there are reports that the justice department argued in court millions would lose their coverage even before president obama apologized for telling americans they could keep their insurance plans and doctors if they like them. even under the obama administration it is projected that more group health plans will transition to their requirements under the regulations as time goes on. as a result of that many people are commenting now that the obama administration knew the healthcare coverages or peop

. kathleen sebelius and others were the officials briefed on the consulting firm's red flags. >> two weeks before she testified before this committee, secretary sebelius was present in a meeting where experts identified significant threats in risks launching the site on october 1st. >> and upton said that sebelius's up beat testimony in april did not match what was happening behind the scenes. >> our energy and resources are focused on getting it up and running and the contracts have been led and we are monitoring it every step of the way. >> sebelius said she thought it would work. >> we were hopeful that the testing that we did, and we did end to end testing would be sufficient and it clearly wasn't, and on balance made a decision to move ahead, you know, if i had known then when i know now, we would have made a different call. >> lawmakers said it's time for heads to roll. >> either way if the president did not know about this, this report said that the white house knew absolutely what was going on and they didn't tell the president. he should be firing these people today. >> at the whi

. the problems with the health care rollout will be among the hot topics, kathleen sebelius is making several stops in florida and nationwide tour to promote the website and the law. in washington today, republican led house committee held two more hearings on problems with the website. >> this hearing is just another attempt to undermine the president's signature law and follow their playbook. >> all of this comes as a new "washington post"/abc news poll shows president obama's approval rating at 42%. the poll also found the record 57% oppose the health care law while 40% are in favor. let me bring in "washington post" reporter juliette, thank you for your time. let's talk about this. the first read points out that the next two months, critical for the president to get this website up and running properly and this may protect not only his legacy, we might see his approval numbers go up as well as his impact on the mid-term elections. how do you see it? >> everyone sees that how that goes will have a huge impact on how people view the laws. it's obvious we see this tied to the botched rollout
that kathleen sebelius and medicaid and medicare administrator and technology officer were briefed in april and yet, after all these briefings of top administration officials there, was still this blunder. >> you were not briefed at all there was a mckenzie report going on? >> i knew that mckenzie has been brought the to conduct some interviews some assessments and report to our administrator, in which i actually participated in some of hose -- >> you participated in interviews. >> i was not given the final report. >> even even though there were warning signs there were no steps taken to avoid this blunder. that leads some leading republicans to say, heads should roll. >> what this report talks about is chaos. at cms. nobody is in charge. they talk about the fact that you had multiple people that were making multiple changes and major design changes to the system just weeks prior to the testing -- prior to the rollout without testing it. >> reporter: the "national review" is reporting in 2010 administration officials predicted the vast majority of americans with employer-booked health insur
they predicted, 12 people signed up. so the numbers we got from kathleen sebelius were slightly better in the states, but way below what the white house said they would be. greg, here is the future of the argument leading in to 2014 what bob said, he foreshadowed president obama did that as well came da, he said basically we wouldn't be having all these problems if republicans would have been more invested in making this work. listen. >> what was already going to be hard was operating within a very difficult political environment and we should have anticipated that that would create a rockier rollout than if democrats and republican were boast inveth inn success. one side is invested in failure and that makes i think the kind of iterative process of fixing glitches and fine tuning the law more challenging. >> you heard it, it's the republicans' fault. >> apparently he believes that one side sis invested in failur while the other side achieves failure. he had a conference call and you had to find a website to get on the conference call. turned out the website that you needed to get on a
